  • Absolutely not.
  • Hell no
  • Strictly No!At lest I can tell teachers to clear (not only mine but all)children, the solving problem more effectively as well as more than once!
  • No Way!!! Hell would 'freeze over before that would ever happen!!
  • No. I do believe in spanking, but that is something a parent needs to do..not a stranger.
  • No way! I won't spank any children when I have them so why would a complete stranger have that right? Hitting on the hand with a ruler is one thing, but spanking?! No!!!
  • Of course not! I have seen too many kids with bruises from teachers "spanking" them. I would rather they call me and I would come to the school. If it was warrented, my child might would get a spanking at home, but it would have to have been a very serious infraction....
  • I don't have a child..but, if I did, no way would I allow that!
  • Never.That's the cruelest act on a child.
  • Parents have often given me permission to do that, however, if I followed through, I would be sacked!
  • No god calls for the parents to do the punishing of physical. She can put them in the corner or keep them in from play, but not spank them.
  • You know, I can see if a parent chooses to do that. I wouldn't. I just don't believe it is good. But I don't see why it can't be a parent's choice, either. It's not an unnatural act or anything.
  • Never. I would make sure the teacher lost his or her job if my kid had been hit
  • ABSOLUTELY ---- NO. I do not spank my daughter and no else has the right either.
  • A conditional MAYBE......IF I was told ahead of time what the offense was and only if it's a swat, not a beating. A good friend of mine, with some troublesome children, has a good saying. He says "sometimes he has to resort to the expressway of learning, from the butt to the brain". He uses the "three strikes" theory.....three warnings or other attempts at changing the bad behavior, then it's A SWAT. Not a beating....not abuse. As a child I got a couple "spankings".....I remember exactly what I did to deserve them. I am thankful that my parents cared enough to discipline me when it was needed, otherwise I could have easily become one of the kids causing so much trouble in our society now.
  • No way!!!!!!!!!
  • NEVER. That is cruel and unusual. I also would be surprised to learn I have a child...
  • NO! NEVER! KIDS ARE NEVER GOING TO LEARN THE RIGHT WA IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO SPANK THEM.
  • Paddle them with another Teacher or Principal as a witness. Yes! I was paddled as a child & never thought of it as being abused only a punishment that I deserved. If you can trust Teacher's to teach your kids they should be trusted to discipline by bustin their butts!
  • No. If my child requires discipline at school, there is a much more professional way to do it ... time out...trip to the principal's office....kept after school, etc. If it is an extreme problem, I would want to be informed and be a part of the disciplinary procedure.
  • That’s a good question. I’m an educator myself however in the state I currently reside in this is illegal. I do believe I would give my child's teacher permission to spank him/her as long as I agreed to the reasoning behind the spanking. I think a little goes a long way when it comes to spanking!!
  • No. Violence solves nothing after all, all teachers are quite adamant about that.
  • It is illegal where I come from so a mute point.
  • If you mean paddle then sure. +2
  • Absolutely! Pop them once for you and twice for me. I have noticed the next generation is unruly because people stopped spanking because it was politically incorrect. Screw that! No one has the right to tell me how to raise MY offspring. Futher there is a thick bold line between discipline and abuse. If you need me to explain it to you, you were never spanked in the middle of a store because you were screaming at mommy because she wouldn't buy you that toy you wanted. Your mom probably caved in and bought it and now you're spoiled and think the world should be handed to you on a silver platter, and should you not get it you become very bitter and nasty.
  • "Spank"--NO. SWAT or PADDLE--YES!!! It kept ME from getting out of line in school, so BOTTOM'S UP!!!
  • Maybe depending on the nature of the offense.
  • No way. Not ever. There are plenty of great punishments that may even hurt more than a slap. No hitting ever.
  • NEVER!
  • No. My boy is 18 and will probably enjoy a spanking.
  • Yes. If I believe a whipping would be appropriate punishment. Which in most cases it is.
